Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook in April 2020.

Interview

Standard interview process. Recruiter reached out to me and I had the following rounds: 1 phone screen, 3 onsite rounds and 1 follow up on-site. Facebook has a very high bar and they want all questions to be answered completely in most cases along with time and space complexity.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Facebook (Boston, MA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I was referred by one of my friends who works for FB and got the chance to interview. The technical question in the interview is not hard and I solved it out. The interview lasts for about 45min. The interviewer seems to be very busy so I don't have time to go through the test cases.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Facebook (Menlo Park, CA) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Received a full-time referral (did not do an internship) and had a phone interview that consisted of 2 questions. Then three onsite interviews on University Day. Overall great experience. For people looking for full-time there without having done an internship, I highly advise you try to get a referral. It goes a long day in just giving you the opportunity to interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Heaps, Binary Trees, DFS/BFS, and Dynamic Programming. I forget the individual questions, but my biggest advice would be to purchase the Leetcode membership and start doing the Facebook questions about 3-4 weeks before your first interview. A lot of their questions are reused and can be easily solved with practice.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Facebook in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was able to get a referral and had the recruiter contact me via e-mail who arranged a coding phone screen after a month. The interviewer was 15 minutes late and seemed very disinterested in the whole interview. He did not ask me any behaviorial questions and just cut straight to coding.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Facebook in September 2019.

    Interview

    Interviewing with facebook can be a hit or miss. You first get a 45 minute phone screen (1 technical thats usually med-hard difficulty). The onsite is definitely easier, 2 -45 min technical interviews and 1 45 min behavioral. I definitely recommend practicing the medium problems on leetcode, and definitely definitely rehearse what you will say for behavioral, because that matters too.
